Our purpose is simple and compelling: to release the natural power of stone to enrich modern living. ROCKWOOL products save energy and water and reduce CO2 emissions, protect buildings from the spread of fire; reduce waste; improve acoustic comfort, building performance and aesthetics; and enhance Precision Growing, thereby improving the efficiency of fresh food production.
We have sponsored a team of Montreal architecture, engineering and design students that are building a net zero, sustainable, green home for the 2018 Solar Decathlon.
With good design and materials, rapid urbanisation can be sustainable.
